DBS pilots world's first QR Ang Bao

Where to get your DBS QR Ang Bao this Chinese New Year

If you haven’t heard, DBS is now piloting a new way of giving red packets this Chinese New Year. This will be the world’s first loadable QR red packet offering a fun, digital twist on the age-old tradition of red packet exchange. It also allows DBS PayLah! users to preserve the traditional act of giving and receiving physical red packets while eliminating the use of cash.

How does it work?

Using DBS PayLah! (a popular mobile wallet in Singapore with more than one million users) customers simply need to scan a unique QR code on a DBS QR Ang Bao to ‘load’ a cash value of up to SGD 999. They may then gift the DBS QR Ang Bao to their family and friends, who can scan the QR code with their own DBS PayLah! app to receive the loaded amount. Check out the short video below on how the DBS QR Ang Bao works.

Where to get them?

Starting 25 January 2019, limited quantities of DBS QR Ang Baos will be made available to customers who wish to try them out. Two sets (in packs of eight) of DBS QR Ang Baos will be distributed to customers at 95 DBS/POSB branches or POSB Pop-Up ATMs island-wide shown in the table below.

IMPORTANT: DBS QR Ang Baos will be valid for use from 25 January 2019 to 15 March 2019. Funds not redeemed by 15 March 2019 will be refunded to the givers.

Innovation and its ability to make an impact on the world has always fascinated me. It is my life goal to understand how technology works around us in the hopes that someday, I could actually make the dreams of mine and others into reality. I genuinely crave to address challenges with the use of technology to improve lives by making a positive difference in the world. No future that we dream of is impossible if we set our mind to it.
